Students in ME 507/607 are expected to attend a minimum of 7 of the 9 seminars. Student attendance is monitored via a sign-in sheet. If you need to make up a seminar attendance you may do so by attending another university-sponsored, technically-focused seminar such as those offered in the Sciences, other Engineering Departments, or Architecture. Verification of attendance is demonstrated by submitting a 1 page summary of the presenter’s key points within 1 week after the seminar.
